What is a mattress topper?

There is a lot of confusion surrounding what a memory foam mattress topper is, and what a mattress pad is. It is quite simple to define mattress topper. It is a cushioned pad which is usually placed to sit on top of the mattress. Mattress toppers are placed on top of the bed to address the limitation of the mattress. A good topper must add support to a mattress that is too soft. Occasionally, mattress toppers are added straps at every corner of the bed to avoid sliding or slipping of the pad.

Unmade BedMost people place mattress topper on top of the bed to compensate for the firmness of a bed. For many years, the two types of mattress that has been very popular include egg crate foam and the thin feather beds.

They are available in different sizes. Sometimes, for economic purpose, some people would buy egg crate foam, which has been cut to different sizes from an industrial store. Foams are usually available for more than $50 and are considered to be more expensive than just extending the life of a bed. That is why most people see mattress toppers as more of luxury that economy.

Today, most mattress toppers are made to look like elastic foam, of which many find more comfortable and hypoallergenic alternative. The most common type of mattress foam are made of memory foam that can adjust to your preferred sleep position, support pressure relieve, and make it ease to turn in bed.

There are many other advantages of memory foam toppers above foam rubber. Memory foams are more comfortable and durable as compare to rubber foam. Memory foams also give more support and does not create allergy contrary to goose down foam. To make it more luxurious, the features of goose down feeling and memory foam are now incorporated while making the mattress foam.

Fashionable Kids Shows

There are a lot of kids tv shows that come and go over the years, but there are a rare few that stand the test of time and which are still around now from when we remember watching them when we were kids. Fireman sam is one such show that has done extremely well to keep up with modern changes and it has seen a transition from stop motion models to 3d computer generated technology.

Simple cartoons are still very popular and Peppa Pig is one example of a show which fuses simple graphics with cute voices and simple stories to create a show that kids love watching online.

You might not believe it, but here in the UK there’s even Peppa Pig World which is a theme park entirely dedicated to the cartoon.

Keeping up with modern hair fashion trends

hair styleFashion is more than just clothes and makeup, your hair is arguably a bigger piece of the puzzle than all of the other factors combined. Your hair stays with you wherever you go, you can’t just swap it out whenever your mood changes which is why it’s important to be able to change your look using your own hair care tools and a bit of creativity.

You should seek advice from your local salon experts and ask them the possibilities for your type of hair, what you can potentially do with it and how you can achieve certain looks with the hair you have. They may even be able to show you a few different styles whilst you’re there in the store with them.

They may advise you on the best types of products you can buy, like straighteners, curling irons, blow dryers etc but there are also websites out there that have extensive information available for you too.

Your hair stylist will be completely on top of all the latest hair fashion trends and if they are good they will be ahead of the curve in terms of what’s going to be the next big look – just think, you could be walking around with a hair style that hasn’t even come into fashion yet. You’ll really stand out amongst the crowd and when the rest of the town wakes up and starts wearing the same hair you’ll be seen as a trend setter!


Nespresso – The Fashionable Coffee Machine

For years coffee has been a staple of the American diet, but never has it been more fashionable to make it in your home. We are all used to getting out to our local coffee house or diner and downing a cup before work, during, and on the way home from work too!

But with the recent popularity of the Nespresso machine, coffee is now becoming the centerpiece of fashionable parties, formal and informal get-togethers.
Functionally, the Nespresso machine is not much more than an automated, easy way to make a different range of Italian coffee drinks easily and consistently. They are great because you don’t have to be a skilled barista to be able to make a great tasting drink, but essentially they’re not that much different to other automated machines that have been around for years already.

The fashionable coffee

nespresso review pageWhere Nespresso stands apart from its competitors is in the marketing department. They have gone on a full advertising assault targeting high fashion (and people who like to think they are fashionable) customers by way of their famous and elegant celebrity appearances and endorsements.

George Clooney has long been an ambassador for the company and is largely to thank for the companies overall perception in the publics eye.

Does it all work?

Well, we love our Nespresso machine, we have one in the office. It does what it says it will do and it does look very sexy on our countertop. It’s a pleasure to use and the drinks are great.

Is it worth the extra money over an alternative style of automated machine? Well, that is subjective. Being in the fashion industry we are well aware of the perceived value of a garment or object as soon as it has brand appeal by association with a designer or celebrity. Does this make it a physically better product? Maybe not, but when you buy Nespresso you’re buying into the whole package.

Where to go to get a Nespresso Machine

We bought our Pixie after reading a review on the coffee lovers 101 site, (they also have reviewed heaps of other espresso and regular coffee machines too). We recommend you check that site out before buying yours.

You should know that the capsules are only available from the official Nespresso site which you can access here.
